ASSOCIATION GUIDELINES


To become a voting member, member must have raced an AA/Supercharged Car in eliminations at an AA/S sanctioned race in the past two (2) years, must currently own a AA/Supercharged Car and is required to be a current paid member / one car one vote. A new member is required to wait for one year before being eligible to vote. New members must be voted in and conversely a member can also be voted out. Must be a member to race with AA/Supercharged. Membership dues to be $400.00 per year. If dues are paid before the last day of the first month of each year, a $50.00 discount (off the $400.00) will be given. They will be eligible for the track purse as provided by the Association. To have voting rights for annual meeting dues must be paid by the first race of the current race year.

The AA/Supercharged Association is run by a five member board of directors, available to answer questions concerning these rules. One board member will be selected as spokes person for our members as well as track personnel.

The AA/Supercharged Association holds a year end meeting once a year. A Board of Directors is voted in each year. An emergency meeting can be held if 70% of the voting members are in attendance. In order to add or change a rule, an 80% vote in favor is required to pass. In a hardship situation the board can approve a representative to vote for the member.

If available a tech inspector should be appointed by the board for enforcement of all published rules. 

Rules changes occur at a meeting.

AA/Supercharged Eliminations are run on an eight car sportsman ladder. 1 vs 5, 2 vs 6, 3 vs 7, 4 vs.8. If one of the eight cars doesn’t qualify it will be placed in the number 8 position on the ladder. If a qualified car cannot make the call for first round, the first available non-qualified car, based on the final qualifying order, will take that position and the ladder will remain in the same order. In final qualifying position legal cars will bump non-legal fill cars down the ladder.  All pairings will be as shown on the ladder, first pair runs first etc. This is done to simplify the running order so that all racers will know were to place their cars in the staging lanes. The association can allow filler cars to participate if the car count is low. Filler cars can not win or accrue points. Non-qualifier money when available should be ½ of the first round payout money.  First round money should be $800.00 as a goal.
